Courage to Love.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



Balloons were floating from strings
Like sparse spectacles of pink and blue.
The baby rocked inside its pouch
Seeing nought but dream of heavens hue
Voices competed with the heart in waves
Flooding the air singing one who saves
The baby was here, the time was nigh
She let out her screams, they let out a sigh.
Covered and cleaned and held up high
A strapping healthy baby boy.
